Adia Millett - You Will Be Remembered: Curated by Jacqueline Francis

Adia Millett: You Will Be Remembered.
Exhibition Period: 9 Nov - 31 Dec 2022
Curated by Jacqueline Francis
Galerie du Monde is delighted to present Adia Millett’s second solo exhibition in Asia. The paintings presented in “You Will Be Remembered.” project the power of mid-twentieth century jazz recordings (and music inspired by them) into the future. Millett listened to the selected music over days and weeks, and she read the thoughtful writings about them. Subsequently, she created a body of buoyant abstract paintings which fully participate in the encounter between jazz and writing inspired by it. In effect, Millett hosted a listening party across time and space.
Viewers will find many of Millett’s long-favored geometries and signs in her paintings — pyramids, triangles, prisms, arrows, that seem stacked, woven, and otherwise organized in close juxtapositions. Freshly considered symbol — rainbow colored arches, and tactics — one-point perspective are here as well. What is also evident is her sustained interest, study, and admiration of quiltmaking techniques, stained glass constructions, and thoughtful design patterns.
